Cellar Door Skeptics 165: Be Intellectually Humble Through Intelligent Speculation

Well if you have not heard the news, #45 is not shutting down the government, but issuing a national emergency to get his ridiculous wall built. This week on the show we had to address the wall, some of the criticisms or lies that he is supporting to try and fund the wall, and how there could be an emerging law suit all because he has to brag about his supposed accomplishments.

The interview part of the show is with a PHD candidate of Physics and creator of Intellegent Speculation Platform. We discuss with him what he purposes as the laws of critical thinking, how he became a freethinker, and his journey to agnosticism. Given the climate we live in, this is an important subject we hope everyone engages in to try with the upcoming elections.

The show closes talking about our charity of the week and our Quick Saves.

Cellar Door Skeptics 164: Everyone Is Awesome and Agnostic Except Jesus

CLICK THE IMAGE TO LISTEN TO THE SHOW!!!

This episode functions like the Lego Movie’s theme of “Everything is Awesome” while looking at being an Agnostic Atheist. They start the episode out by talking the phenomena that Hanna has found where Paper Airplanes are playing a new role in automation. The show moves toward a discussion on how the Bible is not only a harmful to display in schools but may also be harmful to Christians as they take their journey with their faith. They then interview Marie from Everyone’s Agnostic Podcast with her decision to join the show and her desire to help those who want to leave their faith and need stories to guide them through the journey. The show ends with Tanner and Hannas quicksaves.

Cellar Door Skeptics 163: Tanner Goes to Jesus Camp

Click the image to listen to the show!

This week has been a long week for the team. This episode comes a day late as the team is trying to catch up on work and home life. But do not fear they managed to put together a thoughtful episode this week. It begins with a discussion on the Super Bowl, The Ads, and Trump’s State of the Union Address. They continue the show with a look at the charity of the week, Camp Quest Michigan. They tell stories about their camp experiences and how it affected their lives. The show ends with a discussion about Jesus Camp, how it related to Tanner’s upbring and camp experiences, and a look into what Hanna may encounter when his children grow up and want to go to camp.

Cellar Door Skeptics 162: Do Democrats Oppose Walls / New York’s Late Term Abortion Law

The duo starts the show off talking about the charity of the week. The Holocaust was a huge tragedy that plagued the world in the 30s and 40s. The charity is a local memorial museum that helps everyone know the history of the atrocities that happened to millions of people.

As the show continues on, Tanner talks about some of the recent articles pushed by the Anti-Choice groups that believe the New York law allowing women to have abortions after 24 weeks due to complications is going to lead to women having numerous abortions because they just want to. The articles use fear tactics, fake news, and slippery slope arguments to try and conflate the real news of women being able to make their own choices about their health care.

The final segment Hanna did some research to investigate how many times democrats have voted for a wall. He looks into if it is a valid argument many trumpsters pose and what we need to know to ensure that we can make informed decisions when it comes to the next election cycle.

The show ends as always with Hanna’s and Tanner’s Infamous Quick Saves of the week.

Cellar Door Skeptics 161: Hugs or High Fives with Sara Cunningham of Free Mom Hugs

Cellar Door Skeptics is bringing you not one, but two charities of the week. Their segment talking about local charities is extended this week as they interview Sara Cunningham of Free Mom Hugs, an organization dedicated to help other parents realize the having children whom are LGBTQ is wonderful and normal. Sara tells her story about how she left conservative christian beliefs and came to the understanding that her beliefs should never dictate who she loves. She talks about her organization Free Mom Hugs, how it started, and the desire to help make an impact on society to shed the ridiculous idea that LGBTQ people are not deserving of love.

Check out our full unedited interview on Patreon for a longer version of our discussion.

After talking about the different charities, the duo tackle the highly controversial video of the MAGA hat wearing youth, their confrontation with a Native American Elder, and why even with the longer video we need to stop and examine the evidence before letting these children off the hook. Chris Squared take a deep dive into an emotional subject and look at some of the reasons they feel the situation should be given a second look without just accepting what the media said. This segment is full of passion, as both of the Chris’ wade through how the situation could have been handled better by the children, and how even if they were screaming, how their MAGA hats represent the hate and racism embodied within our society.

The show ends as always with Hanna’s and Tanner’s Infamous Quick Saves of the week.

Cellar Door Skeptics 160: Does Capitalism Fund Science Research?

CLICK THE IMAGE TO LISTEN TO THE SHOW!

Each week the duo tries to bring important topics to the forefront of the conversation. This week they examine some of the proposed bills that are pushing the Democratic Party more progressive. They talk about what this means for the party, and if it is just a wave from this last election or is the party starting to look at other options to help encompass other voters who felt isolated after the 2016 primary.

The Charity of the Week focuses on Wigs for Kids. This amazing charity helps make it possible for children to receive wigs if cancer has helped remove the hair on their heads. This organization has played a big role within Michigan providing over 4000 wigs to children in Michigan.This episodes in depth analysis segment reviews research funding. Chris squared look into whether Federal Funding has played a bigger role in new technology and advancements or if Capitalism and Big Business are the drivers of where we are at today. They review several papers along with research articles that talk through some of the history as well as the standard for research inside of the US.

The show ends as always with Hanna’s and Tanner’s Infamous Quick Saves of the week.

Cellar Door Skeptics 156: Predicting 2020 and The Competition 

If you thought the show was becoming stale, check out this week’s episode with the C Plus Plus duo, which is their new nickname thanks to an amazing listener last week. The duo talks through a Florida community that got hit by the Marijuana Bug and had a 12 year old sell marijuana edibles to students in one of their counties. The problem comes when Fox and Friends tries to associate Marijuana with overdosing and toxic environment that harms children. The child got 7 felonies for distributing the drug and Tanner goes on a rant to discuss that there is no reason why this child should face that many years in jail for selling pot.

They also talk about the local charity of the week called Creative Youth Center in Grand Rapids, promoting creative writing skills amongst local children within the Grand Rapids city limits. This charity helps students bring out their creative skills and develop creative thinking skills to help them have a more rounded life.

They continue with a Hanna Rant on Thermodynamics and some of the discussions that have plagued his facebook wall over the last week. This quick science segment tackles how some of the inconsistencies that people normally like to spout when they want to disprove evolution.

The show ends discussing some tactics that should be used in the 2020 election period. The discussion surrounds some of the key points on how to tackle the Trump Problem and how we can focus on creating a better more constructive environment within our government.

The show ends with Hanna’s and Tanner’s Quick Saves of the week.

Cellar Door Skeptics 155: Should Lame Ducks Be Allowed to Fly

Cellar Door Skeptics hits many topics this week. They work their way through some of the new Devos rules and how you can get involved in making your voice heard about the atrocity that she is trying to push on our schools. The charity of the week is Kids Food Basket and it is close to Tanner’s heart. The impact they make is amazing for the Grand Rapids, Holland, and Muskegon community. The show continues with a discussion on whether the Lame Duck Sessions in Congress should be continued to be allowed or if we should change how much influence the leaving congress has on the state. They close by talking about Penny Stocks and the new Pot Stocks that High Times are pushing.

Cellar Door Skeptics 154: A Trail of Tear Gas

Cellar Door Skeptics starts the show off talking about their Thanksgiving experiences and if the politics divided their dinner tables this year. They also talked about their charity of the week BeNice. Mental health is the main focus for this program as it works to educate schools on bullying and techniques to help schools better cope with the issues that are affecting students now a days. Their science segment this week looks at Plants and Ants, which came first and how evolution played a role between species that are not able to breed. The political segment this week talks about Trump’s desire to take control of the military troops to “protect” the border without running afoul of Congress. He has authorized “Force” for the troops to deter individuals seeking asylum. The duo looks at what legal asylum is and if Trump is violating the law. They also examine the border spectrum to determine what the long game that Trump is trying to play. The show ends as usual with the Quick Saves of the week.
